Really enjoyed this series

The end to any tale is always bitter sweet, you look for conclusion to a tale to know what will happen, but then thats it no more. The great thing about this ending is that it is also the beginning, In the e-book is chapter one of book one Under the Eagle.
Champion is just what you would expect it to be, the training of Pavo to face Hermes, its going to have an element of the incredulous with again a beginner in the arena facing up to champion of the arena, a man unbeaten in 50 fights. But Simon also manages to bring some sanity and drama to the training and also how that training will help in the fight. There are some lovely moments between Macro and Pavo, a pair as unlikely As Macro and Cato but who have come to respect each other, Nacrissus finally makes more of an appearance, showing that he is actually less slimy than murena.
All in all a very good solid story and a great way to end this series of tales.
Really enjoyed this series and i hope Simon does more
